In this report, the basic heat transfer and isothermal flow friction characteristics for five perforated nickel matrices, one perforated nickel fin with solid splitter matrix, and one solid nickel matrix, all of "parallel plate" configuration are presented. In addition, similar information is provided for a 20° skew matrix fabricated from perforated nickel. Finally, performance of two offset rectangular fin matrices constructed from stainless steel, is evaluated. Where meaningful, a comparison of the performance of these surfaces is made. All matrices are investigated by the transient method of testing utilizing the maximum slope analysis of Locke and include the effects of longitudinal thermal conduction as reported by Howard.
